Everyone loves a reboot, right? What could possibly go wrong?
A long time ago, in a galaxy much like this one, there was a rag tag crew of misfits who joined forces and created mayhem each week. They were known as the League of Extraordinary Bloggers, and their impact is still felt to this day. As the fearless leader of this group, I’ve been toying with the idea of relaunching the group with a few adjustments to accommodate the social media-driven world that we live in today.
For those new to the game, the League is a weekly writing/photography challenge designed to boost your creativity and interaction with fellow pop culture fans, while also increasing your online presence in the process — think of it as an adrenaline shot to the heart of your online presence. Each week, a topic is posted here on Cool & Collected, and then it is your job, if you choose to accept the challenge, to come up with your own take on that topic. If you write a blog post, you should link and promote some of the other bloggers who have also contributed that week.
One big adjustment that I want to make is to ensure that we can loop in all those awesome folks on Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, SnapChat, Pinterest, and any other social media platform that’s out there. I’m not sure what will be the best way to accomplish this, other than with a hashtag or two, but I’m open to ideas.
Also, we need to tweak the name. The League of Extraordinary Bloggers was great… for bloggers. But assuming that many people will only participate through social media, we need a new name, so from here on out, we’ll be known as the “Pop Culture League.”
So, let us proceed to lay waste to the dark corners of the internet and carpet bomb the world with our nostalgic memories and musings.

The League assignments will be posted each week on Monday (starting today!). Raise your pencils, and… begin!
